Blogging 101

Blogging 101 is mostly about the blogging

vocabulary. To understand blogs, you need to know

the terms blog, platform, domain, and web host.

Once you have mastered these key elements of

blogging, you can enter any conversation about

blogging with confidence. After you know what

exactly a blog is, you will be on your way to

passing the final exam of blogging 101.

Blog is short for weblog, which simply means a

series of online posts presented in reverse

chronological order. That’s all! Most blogs are text,

but there are also photo blogs and video blogs. The

rest of blogging 101 has to do with the technical

side of things. If you are setting up a blog, you will

need a platform, a web host, and a domain. A

blogging platform is a computer software program

that allows you to write posts and to update your

blog. Your platform is also what you use to design

the look of your blog, from color scheme to font

size. The web host is sort of like the virtual file

cabinet where your blog is stored. Your computer

communicates with the host when you upload or

edit a post. The domain is the online address of

your blog, and usually ends in ‘dot com’. Now that

you know what a blog is, what a platform is, and

what domains and hosts are, congratulate yourself!

You have passed blogging 101.
